ryzen 9 3900x temps are too high

so a few weeks ago I and my friend bought the exact same pc part literally..same case same everything, when we built our pces i didn't notice my CPU temperature since we have the same exact build we benchmarked on his pc, temps are fine on his side hitting 60c when gaming and full load around 80c to 85c and 35c on idle (using a stock fan). However when I benchmarked and tested my own build temps where way different 

50c-55c on idle 

70c-75c when gaming and on full load hits 95c

this blew my mind

I checked the case fans (thinking it was an airflow problem)

I have checked if the CPU fan was working fine

and I even took the CPU fan re-applied the thermal paste 

after that, I assumed it was a malfunction in the CPU fan so I went and bought a liquid cooler 240 

temps went down alright 

42c-46c on idle

60c-65c gaming

80c-85c on full load 

and then here it comes.... my friend decided to buy the same exact liquid cooler and installed it

his CPU temperatures are shocking 

27c-30c on idle

40c-45c gaming

and 65c-75c on full load!

please help me I've literally tried everything
